Dr. Apolo shares details on the rationale of the AMBASSADOR study: An open-label, randomised, phase III trial, evaluating the efficacy and safety of pembrolizumab as an adjuvant treatment in muscle-invasive and locally advanced urothelial carcinoma (MIUC).

Dr. Apolo discusses the positive second interim data for disease-free survival (DFS), with a medium DFS with adjuvant pembrolizumab of 29 months vs. 14 months in the observation arm. Based on these findings, Dr. Apolo stated that pembrolizumab is active and should be considered as a therapy for patients in the adjuvant setting.
